19-year-old Northern Knights prospect Dominic Akuei is one who developed quickly in 2021, capturing attention with his enormous vertical leap as he was made to transition from a key position bookend to a makeshift ruck on the fly. Nominated as a Carlton NGA candidate, he could garner interest towards the back-end of the draft, but would be a handy and developable rookie option.

Upside is a buzzword attached to players like Akuei, with his athletic profile promising for a player of his mould. He is capable of jumping on the heads of opposition rucks, but uses his aerial aptitude to time spoils well in his defensive duties. Able to also play up forward, Akuei is versatile and has solid potential, but has plenty of improvement left.
